DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured the Minyan Suburb one hour ago, forcing the remaining jihadist rebels to withdraw to the nearby sawmills and Carton Factory.

Not long after securing the Minyan Suburb, the Syrian Arab Army launched a decisive assault on both the Minyan Sawmills and Carton Factory, resulting in a fierce battle witht he Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) militants.

Intense clashes are now ongoing inside the Carton Factory, as the Syrian Arab Army looks to expel the remaining jihadist rebels inside this key site in west Aleppo.

If the Syrian Armed Forces fail to secure the Carton Factory and Minyan Sawmills, then the jihadist rebels will be in position to launch a counter-attack to retake the western sector of the Minyan Suburb.
